Critical Histories of Activism: Indonesia’s New Order and its Legacies

Critical Histories of Activism: Indonesia’s New Order and its Legacies | Human Rights Violation in Indonesia | Scoop.it

Sunday, April 14, 2013
8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
314 Royce Hall
UCLA Campus

The New Order began with the mass killing of members of the communist party and was marked by 30 years of Soeharto’s repressive policies. Compradors and cronies thrived; critics were crushed. But beneath the state’s violence and repressive actions towards large segments of the population, political and cultural activists developed techniques of action and expression that survived policing or thrived in its constant presence.  Some of these modes of action and activism lasted beyond the fall of Suharto but for others the new political era required different critical tactics. Nevertheless, many of the new communities and institutional forms born under the New Order live on in its wake. Fourteen participants will address the histories of cultural and political movements and organizations as they developed in the New Order, and explore the legacies of the New Order in contemporary Indonesian movements.
